Fully-integrated vision solution
Deva Electronic Controls, a UK-based manufacturer of integrated solutions for the CMM and machine automation industry, has introduced a fully-integrated solution to allow any machine designer to obtain time and motion critical video and still images through a simple programmable interface.
The kit offers a single interface that can be used with manual and CNC high-resolution non-contact inspection machines to provide programmable vision and lighting technology along with high precision position measurement and motion control. The kit shortens design time, system development and integration time.
The complete hardware system includes a high-resolution, low frame rate colour USB camera module, the Deva 028. Making use of high-speed USB 2.0 to transfer image data to a PC host system, the Deva 028 is based on 3 Megapixel CMOS sensor with Bayer mosaic for colour reproduction. Features include cropping, panning, skipping and binning modes, which allow control of image resolution to further increase image capture times and frame rates. Gain priority, shutter priority and combined gain/shutter exposure modes automatically adjust for changing light conditions and multiple, independently configurable image capture streams operate simultaneously across one or more cameras.
The system also includes a lighting controller and 64 LED USB light ring (Deva 022) and a four-axis high-speed, closed loop CMM controller offering high precision position measurement and motion control.
All components are integrated through software drivers that are supplied with the kit. Full support is provided through online, telephone and email support. Deva also offers system integration support.
